Step by Step Instructions – Android

(iOS Users, please click here or scroll down about halfway)

– Step 1 –
Gather Your Materials

Materials Needed:

  • Grounded Outlet
  • Cell Phone or Tablet
  • Wink HUB 1.0 or 2.0

Next, we’ll locate an indoor outlet which is grounded and within the recommended distance from your Z-Wave Hub/Gateway.

When you’re ready to select your plug’s location, please move onto, “Step 2”.

Walls, furniture, and other obstructions may affect the communication between the Plug-In Module and your Hub/Gateway, so please keep this in mind when selecting your location.

**If you are having issues pairing your device, please make sure you are within range above. If you are confident you are, please click on the, “Exclusion / Device Removal” tab below to exclude your device first**

-Step 2-
Select Your Location

Please use the below Z-Wave Worksheet to determine whether or not your location is suitable for your Z-Wave device.

Here’s how to use the Z-Wave Worksheet:

  • Go to where you want your switch to be located (or where it’s already located) and look straight towards your HUB (or nearest Z-Wave repeater)
  • Count how many walls, furniture, or other obstructions are in the way and write the down
  • Then use the chart and figures below to figure out if the switch should be within range

Z-Wave Worksheet (from your instructions)
Please use the below to calculate whether or not your switch is within range.
(NOTE: you can ignore the, “Page 2” below — this picture is taken from our instruction manual):

 

A Note on Max Amperage:
Make sure that both devices together do not equal more than 15 Amps. The, “Always-On” outlet (non-smart) can handle 15 Amps, while the Z-Wave smart outlet can handle 10 Amps — So, if you have something that’s 10 Amps in the, “Always-On” outlet, you can only use something that’s 5 Amps in the smart outlet.

Note: It is not recommended plugging in space (electric) heaters, or any other appliances that may present a hazardous condition due to unattended, unintentional, or automatic power control.

**If you are having issues pairing your device, please make sure you are within range above. If you are confident you are, please click on the, “Exclusion / Device Removal” tab below to exclude your device first**

-Step 3-
Adding (Including) to the Network & Completing the Setup Process

Alright, let’s include your Z-Wave device to your network!

Please do not plug in your device until you start the actual inclusion process — this plug has, “Auto-Inclusion” so if you plug it in too early, it will not auto-include.

Including Steps:

  • Click on the Menu and then, “Hubs”
  • On the HUBS screen, click, “Add a Product” underneath the picture of the HUB
  • Click on, “Lighting”
  • Scroll down to the very bottom and press, “Switches”
  • Then click, “Generic Z-Wave Binary Switch”
  • Press, “Next” where it says to, “Refer to the product manual…” since you will not need it if you are following these directions!
  • On the, “Select HUB” screen, select your HUB of choice (if you have multiple) and click, “Next”
  • Click, “Next” again
  • Click, “Connect Now” and your HUB will start flashing BLUE
  • Plug in your device and let it find the signal from the HUB.
    • If successful, your Inovelli device will flash WHITE twice (NOTE: Auto-Inclusion will time out after 30 seconds)
    • If your Inovelli device does not flash WHITE within 30 seconds, please use the alternate method of pairing which is pressing the middle button 5x rapidly (within 1-2 seconds)
  • If successful, your HUB will flash GREEN and your phone will say, “Success”

Congratulations, you now have a remote controlled smart plug!

IMPORTANT: It is important to note what color the HUB turns when flashing. Sometimes Wink will throw an error on the screen that says, “This is taking longer than expected”.  If your HUB turns GREEN and you still get this error, just close out of your Wink App and re-open and the switch should be there (give it a few seconds).

STILL CAN’T GET IT TO PAIR? You may need to exclude the device first. While this is rare, sometimes it happens. Please click see the, “Exclusion / Device Removal” section below. Once that’s completed, please return here.

**If you are having issues pairing your device, please make sure you are within range above. If you are confident you are, please click on the, “Exclusion / Device Removal” tab below to exclude your device first**

-Step 4-
Run a Z-Wave Refresh to Update Your Mesh Network With Your New Plug (OPTIONAL: But Recommended)

This step is highly recommended whenever a new Z-Wave device is added to your network. It tells your HUB to re-map the network which, ultimately, will make your network faster and more efficient.

Z-Wave Refresh Steps:

  • In the Wink app, click on the, “Menu” button
  • Next, click on, “Hubs”
  • Then click on the three dots at the top right of the screen (to access the Hub’s settings)
  • Then click on the Hub you paired your device to
  • Scroll down and click, “Z-Wave Controls”
  • Next click, “Z-Wave Network Rediscovery” (you should see a, “Command Successfully Sent” popup at the bottom)
  • Wait 5-10 minutes for your Wink HUB to re-map (discover) the network
    NOTE: Do not touch anything on your network during this time

Congratulations, you now have a smart plug!
